Boeing would double F/A-18E/F Super Hornet production next year if Senate appropriators are successful.
The US Navy asked for $1 billion to buy 9 F/A-18E/Fs in Fiscal 2010. But Senate appropriators added another $1 billion to buy a total of 18, according to a press release (which I overlooked yesterday) by Sen Kit Bond, who represents the Super Hornet’s manufacturing base in Missouri.
Boeing would also build another 22 EA-18G Growlers that were already funded in the defense appropriations bill.
